Scholars have debated for years about what the first book of the Bible really is. Most have concluded that the Book of Job was probably the first book written. Think about that: what if the message God wanted us to receive wasn’t about how we were created, but what to do when life gets bad. Being a Christian means happiest. Joy. It means you get that white picket fence and have friends that bring you companionship. Hardship and spiritual warfare may be words that Christians know, but it’s not exactly something we talk about. Job is a complicated and messy story because it address the elephant in the giant room that is Christianity: that believing in God doesn’t mean happiness. Or wealth. Or even goodness. Job is a story that teaches us an ugly truth about what we believe: that things aren’t always better on the other side of the mountain—that good things don’t always happen to good people—and that sometimes life is just messed up.

A powerful empath weary from the constant intrusion of others’ emotions, he’s finally cloistered in his rural Wisconsin retirement community. He hopes to find, if not peace, then at least a little quiet. But when four impossible-seeming killings shake North America, Bibi is drawn into an investigation he wants nothing to do with. The victims were killed by motes—unstoppable drones only an empath can control—and decades ago, Bibi was an unwitting subject in the wartime program that created them: the program that weaponized empathy. With his few remaining friends at risk, and tensions between countries of the former United States reawakening, everything may depend on Bibi’s lifelong struggle with his own extraordinary ability.
